If you are one of the 9,000 licensees that apply each year for a COAM license, this article is a“must read”. The staff of the GLC/COAM Division works very hard to process all applications for licenses in a timely manner. Here is the practical side of the license application process, with revealing insights into simple things you can do to avoid delay.
- Payment of Taxes or other State Financial Obligations – Before applying for a COAM license verify you have no outstanding tax liabilities. Contact the Department of Revenue (DOR) for the State of Georgia at (404)417-4445 to obtain a status on any outstanding tax liabilities.
- Apply for the Correct License Type – Licensees need to make sure they are applying for the correct type of license (Master, Location, Manufacturer or Distributor) and the correct class of license (Class A and/or Class B). Location licensees who are in possession of both Class A and Class B machines in the same business location, or anticipate having both Class A and Class B machines in the same business location anytime during the licensing year , must apply for a Class B license.
- Requests for Information – Respond to information requests from the Retailer Contracts Administration (RCA) Department promptly. Failure to respond to any information request may result in the denial of your COAM application.
- Registration Information – Licensees should ensure they have all registration information available prior to logging into the licensing application including your www.gacoam.com username and password, State Tax Identification (STI) number, method of payment information and any identification or citizenship information that may be required to complete your application.
- Updating Officers/Owners/Shareholders – Applicants must ensure ALL officer/owner/shareholder information has been updated with the DOR prior to submitting a COAM application. A “Personal Information” page must be completed for EACH officer/owner/shareholder when submitting a COAM application.
- Providing True and Correct Information on Applications – Applicants are required to provide the GLC with true and correct information on their COAM application. Failure to do so may result in the denial of your COAM application. Specific examples of failure to provide true and correct information are:
– Licensees input their business location address as their home address.
– Licensees input the email address for their bookkeeper or accountant rather than that
of the owner of record.
